Presentation Title:

  • Muybridge, Motion and the Still Image



  • The exhibition ‘Silent Motion’ juxtaposed photo sequences taken in the 1880s by Muybridge, the pioneer of early cinema, with works by contemporary digital artists. These works ranged from web surveys to murals, demonstrating the enhanced methods now widely available for studying motion, and for presenting the complex ebb and flow of city life. This paper reflects on the enduring fascination of the still image ? whether the format be painting, photography, or digital media.
